AbstractObservations of occurrences of inflight cold-soaked fuel frost (CSFF) on the wings of jet transport aircraft are presented and discussed, together with weather observational records. Although potentially rare occurrences, it would appear that such inflight frost deposition is not unique. Nor are the aerodynamic characteristics of jet transport wings protected in any way, from the roughness effect of inflight frost deposition. © 2012 by The Crown in Right of Canada.
